about the innovation

What is ChalkPeace?

Peace Education

We as human beings are war-like in our thought processes. Our communication, words and manner of conveying emotions suggests a predisposition towards violence.  Our Peace Education Resources and Workshops center around the core idea of peace being a process that begins from within: as empathy, respect for diversity or cultivating the value of mutual trust and tolerance.

Gender Equality

If all genders were equally respected, given their due, and were free to enjoy the inherent sovereignty they own over their minds and bodies, no other inequities would hold water. Our Gender Equality Resources and Workshops center around the core idea of gender being a spectrum, beyond the ambit of the binary, and then couches approaches towards creating equality within that space.

Gender-based Violence Sensitization

In both peacetime and wartime, the occurrence of gender-violence is a representation of dominance and aggression, and that the bodies are focal points for aggressive discrimination based on gender. Our GBV Sensitization workshops help create awareness of violence as it exists - both as micro and macro aggression, and as structural and outright violence. We aim to build peaceful spaces through sensitization.
